My son when he was 12 lost vision in his eye due to a BB gun shooting. Every day I help patients apply for Social Security Disability and many are dying or maybe wish they were. I cry a lot. Sorry my info did not help. This life is just a blink. Deb will live forever and you will see her again.
I have to say that the SSD people very much expedited Deb's application when she was sick originally. I was proud that they said it was the best application they had ever received....I didn't know what I was doing but I knew she needed help pronto. The SSD people I worked with were among the most efficient people I have ever worked with.
It hurts to see how many people hurt.
Her daughter is going to receive the survivor benefits. That is already set up.
